About Us

Welcome to the PrimoHoagies deli franchise opportunity! We are a sub sandwich franchise that specializes in Italian hoagies. Our menu items feature some of the finest meats and cheeses on the market, and our award-winning bread is a fan favorite. PrimoHoagies franchises have been a staple of Philadelphia and the surrounding areas, and now we are offering you the opportunity to open a PrimoHoagies sub shop franchise anywhere on the east coast.

Originally opened in South Philadelphia in 1992, PrimoHoagies prides itself on serving the highest quality Thumann's meats and cheeses, sliced fresh, piled high, on their award-winning seeded bread. The company's success is attributed to several factors contributing to the Primo difference including the quality and consistency that result in repeat, loyal customers and the commitment to only serving the freshest gourmet meats and cheeses through a diverse menu featuring dozens of Specialty Hoagies, unique and original to PrimoHoagies.



Philly Born and Bread

We got our start in south Philadelphia -- sub and sandwich shops were everywhere, but we offered something that helped us stand out from the rest of the pack. Our hoagies are unlike any other, and we quickly became a favorite of Philadelphians. Thousands of people around the area grew up on PrimoHoagies, so much so that a few have wanted to take PrimoHoagies to their new homes in different states. This helped our franchise take off, and since then, our franchise opportunity has grown immensely.


The PrimoHoagies Franchise Opportunity

We are a smaller sandwich shop franchise concept, which means that investors have a lot more flexibility in terms of a protected development area, and they have a lot more potential for multi-unit ownership. With multiple units, we’ve seen franchisees able to build and manage a team within each location they own. If the units continue to grow and see success, owners have been able to create networks of their stores, enjoying greater independence by hiring people for positions like district managers and operations directors to manage the network’s day to day.



Sandwich Shop Franchise Opportunities Have Been Growing Immensely.

Everybody loves sandwiches – that’s why concepts like our PrimoHoagies franchise work so well. The industry is worth about $20 billion, and that number is only expected to grow as more and more people look for fast-casual concepts that offer quick, easy, and quality meals. The industry is very profitable, but only when entrepreneurs go about it the right way.


A Primo Investment for a Primo Franchise

The PrimoHoagies franchise concept offers low-cost entry costs for our industry, as well as reasonable build out costs. Our franchise fee is a modest $15,000, and this buys you the exclusive rights to use the PrimoHoagies brand name and business model. This, combined with our consistent franchise design, mean that it doesn’t have to break the bank to open a successful franchise.

The Industry

The sandwich and sub franchise industry has been experiencing incredible growth over the past decade. Today, the industry is estimated to be worth $23 billion, with no signs of slowing down. There’s no doubt: people love sub and sandwich restaurants! With our focus on old-fashioned, Italian-style hoagies, PrimoHoagies stands out from other sandwich franchises in the industry.


Room for New Sandwich Franchises to Grow

Unlike other franchising sectors where the big, older players dominate the entire industry, the sub and sandwich industry has a lot more room for opportunities.

Brands like PrimoHoagies see so much success because more and more people are dining out and are searching for better alternatives that traditional fast food can’t offer. In addition, PrimoHoagies has a stronghold in the Philadelphia area, making them a big part of the culture around Philly but an exotic franchise opportunity in other parts of the country.

Investors in PrimoHoagies franchises have the potential to be successful because they are either bringing something totally new to an area that has never heard of this sandwich franchise, or they are catering to a demand in the areas surrounding Philadelphia and Pennsylvania. Either way, they are bringing the PrimoHoagies franchise concept to a protected development area that has a huge demographic of consumers that are interested in the concept.



Ideal Candidate

We are looking for genuine individuals or group who LOVES our food and who are willing to do whatever it takes to make great hoagie for our customers. We want prospective franchisees who have ambitions for single or multi-unit development and are willing to go grow with us. Management, relationship experience, and overall good person is what makes a perfect franchisee.
